Music in the ICU

Mar. 5, 2020, 8:47 AM

Blair School of Music junior Javin Bose, left, recently played cello for visitor Angela Pursley and her mother, ICU patient Linda Saddler. The live performance was part of the Therapeutic Music in the ICU pilot project, which studies the effect of live music on ICU patients, staff and families. Since the program began in January, volunteers have played more than 85 hours for patients. Vanderbilt musicians are still needed for the study.
